Rogue Traders star: arrest warrant no longer outstanding
9:17am Friday 15th June 2012 in News
Rogue Traders’ star Dan Penteado who was wanted by the police no longer has a warrant outstanding for his arrest.
The 40-year-old of Portarlington Close in Westbourne is accused of receiving more than £24,000 of housing and council tax benefit while working for the BBC.
The warrant was issued after Penteado, who is Matt Allwright’s sidekick on the Watchdog show, failed to turn up at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
A Dorset Police spokesman would not say if Penteado had been arrested or had voluntarily attended a police station.
